Irish Blessing Freebie !

Just in time for St Patrick's Day projects, I put together
this Irish Blessing. One file size is 2167 by 1310 pixels
for scrapbook layouts.
The other file size included in the zip is for card makers.
It will print out 3.3" by 2" ( 997 x 603 pixels) . I used that size
for the inside of a card and it printed out nicely.
Thanks to Lady Shannon for allowing the altered use of her
shamrock element.
You can get the file HERE
If you can use the word art, I'd love to see what you make
and credit to SugarPawScraps.

Spring Easel Card

I've got Spring fever ! I'm ready for some warm air
coming this way. We still have about 5 weeks of cold, snow, wind
and ice to muddle through here in the mitten. I'll
have to settle for spring color and fun images till then.
I made an easel card using Meljen Designs . The minute I saw this
digistamp I loved it. Learning to color with markers has been
a challenge for me. I'm all about the digital design coloring so
adding color by hand using a marker is not easy.
There is no *undo* option ! You are stuck with your
mistake or have to start all over again which is a bit
Click on the image for detail.
Here is what I used:
Johnny Boots Spring Digistamp and Tulip line sentiment by MelJen Designs.
Digi frame by Kim B Designs which was fussy cut by hand and for
some dimension foam dots were added. Both digistamps were
colored with prisma markers.
Card base is textured paper by Colorbok
Pattern paper by Doodlebug Design ....Easter assortment
Misc Buttons, pearls, ribbon embellishments.There is a tutorial
for making the korker ribbons for cards ( and most
anything korker) under Labels or Here.
Glass Effects and gelly pens.

I have entered this card into Meljens Challenge # 48.
It's a first for me other than a card share at Meljen's.

Spring is right around the corner ! I just know it :-)
